hi guy's


just to let you know that I bought one of these a few months ago and the pin at the end of the block fell out.

I emailed the company and asked if it was possible to get a replacement

next day a reply arrived asking for my address and 10 days later 3 pins arrived !!!

what fantastic service and a big thanks to michelle the MD

Hi Richard.

Indeed good service.

You should have bought RIDGID and save the pins.

Why do you think they keep spare pins???

no chemi

i think you're doing them a great diservice

they 'keep' spare pins because they manufacturer them!!

basically I'm really happy with the flare block AND my new pins

cheers

Thats fine Richard.
I know the make and I think they're good.

I have the same by Ridgid 24 years old, used almost daily.
Never lost a pin. ;)

get one of the new concentric type flareers

they are in a differnet league to the old imperial eastman type

honestly it'll be the best investment you've made in a long time..

cheers

Welcom to the world Richard :)

Ridgid was making concentric type flaring tools at least 25 years now and that exactly the tool I use.

well this is interesting

i have been around this game since 83 and not seen one of these since to '00's not one engineer used one, company issued them or catalogue (D&W HRP NRS et al) listed such a device either

are you sure it's a concentric with a eccentric cone??
